Pacific Crew app now available

Posted by Pacific Timesheet Support on Jun 5, 2018 8:30:00 AM

Pacific Timesheet has just released Pacific Crew for Mobile which allows your users to manage and track crew time, expense, assets and logs online or offline. Pacific Crew for Mobile is for the iPhone and Android smartphones. Pacific Crew for Tablets is for IOS tablets like the iPad or iPad mini and various Android tablets.

Background

In our design and engineering, we have used a "mobile first" approach for Pacific Crew, completing what we think is a superior mobile app design. We chose a mobile first approach for couple reasons: 1) mobile app design is generally more difficult because navigation and user interface must be clean, economical and intuitive. It must do a lot more with less of everything, and 2) through the crucible of our significant mobile first effort, as we hoped, it's created several innovative Pacific Crew features that you will soon learn about.

  • Employee profiles (read only or editable)
  • Employee picklists used to select employees for groups, crews, and security permission assignments for projects, tasks, groups, etc.
  • Employee mini-profiles available in employee timesheets, crew timesheets, and thumbnail photos on approval dashboards, time off requests, and email notices.

A Non-technical SAML 2.0 Primer for Single Sign-On

Posted by Pacific Timesheet Support on Sep 2, 2015 7:00:00 AM

Pacific Timesheet is one of many application services that can connect users with SAML 2.0-based single sign-on and identity management services at your organization.

If your organization is already using single sign-on this way, or if you plan to, this article is for you.

What is it?

SAML 2.0 allows user authentication and single sign-on so users can gain easy yet secure access to your enterprise applications, whether they are inside your network or in the cloud. And it's something you're going to be hearing more about in the years to come. This non-technical SAML 2.0 primer will give you the basics for when this comes up at the water cooler or in management meetings.

SAML or Security Assertion Markup Language allows users to authenticate one time to a home network  (or in SAML-speak an “Identity Provider”). With that one login the user can gain access to as many applications (“Service Providers”) as they are permitted without having to login again. Simple, sweet and magical, right?
